Every week we have been focusing on a different type of transportation. So far we have talked about bikes and cars. We come up with reasons why I would want (or not want) to use a particular type of transportation to travel to Chicago. For example, we agreed that while riding a bike to Chicago may take a long time, it would be a great way for me to get exercise!
Last week we focused on cars. After discussing the pros and cons of taking a car to Chicago (we decided that although a car may take longer, we'd be able to pack a lot of stuff to bring on the trip), we read the fun story If I Built a Car by Chris Van Dusen. After, students had the opportunity to design their own fun car!
This week we will be focusing on airplanes. I look forward to sharing some exciting facts about airplanes with my kindergartners!
